The Entry Fee
The entry fee is £30. This covers entry into the event, car stickers and a finisher’s souvenir. Food consumed at the restaurants is at the entrant’s expense (main courses will typically be around £10-£12). Fuel, car preparation, any tolls, fines etc., getting to and from the event are also at the entrant’s expense.

The route will be available as .gpx files for use on Garmin and Tomtom Satnavs and these files will be available as Google routes for use on Smartphones. From the .gpx files you will be able to transfer the route to a road atlas.

A WhatsApp group will be established for all entrants to allow the organisers to communicate with all entrants before, during and after the event. When providing entrant’s and crew’s phone numbers please ensure that you give the number that you have registered for WhatsApp. It may be slightly different format from the number you normally use. (I.e. rather than 0787xxxxx it should be +44787xxxxx ) 
The following equipment will be necessary for navigation and communication: an up to date Satnav System and a Smartphone with WhatsApp installed and operating. At least one member of the crew will need to know how to operate this equipment.

Carbon Balancing
This year Club Triumph will not be underwriting the cost of carbon balancing the C2C. The Organisers have requested Tree-V (the operators of the FBHVC scheme that Club Triumph supports) to introduce a 500 Mile Rally Category for events. This would enable entrants to carbon balance their emissions for this event at the minimum cost. There is a 2,500 Mile Rally Category for events that would enable participants in both the C2C and the RBRR to balance both events at a lower cost than buying annual subscription to the FBHVC Carbon Balancing scheme. See https://trees.fbhvc.co.uk/shop
The availability of the 500 Mile Rally Category will be advised in Entrant Updates.

T- and Polo shirts will become available shortly and can be purchased through the club website shop. Entrant Updates will alert you to the availability of merchandise.

And Finally
This year the organisers have focused on providing entrants with what we believe to be the most varied and interesting C2C route yet.
